in a big way at those polling stations. those measures, take advantage of those. president obama right now speaking in mentor, ohio. let's listen in. >> -- how proud i am of erin and her sisters and their whole family. give them a big round of applause. [ applause ] there they are right there! erin was pretty excited about meeting me. she saw justin bieber the other day. so i'm like the second most exciting person she's met. the in the last few days. no. my understanding also is that this man right here just w-- ths band just won the state championship. best band in the house in ohio! in the house! congratulations! and the football team is in its first play-off game tonight. so the cardinals have a lot going on right now. despite all that, the fact you still came out i'm grateful for. so thank you. for the past several days, all of us have been focused on one of the worst hurricanes in our lifetimes. and each day i've been getting on calls with mayors and governors, county officials just trying to make sure that people are getting able to help. i tell them the entire country is behind them
from harrisburg right now. the polls show that romney is narrowing the gap with obama in that state. can he realistically hope to take the state this late in the game? >> reporter: no doubt about it. 90 minutes from me at the airport you'll have paul ryan, the republican running mate holding a rally. yeah, tomorrow mitt romney is going to be in suburban philadelphia. that's the swing part of the state, the part of the state that really determines who wins pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes. the obama campaign is not taking this sitting down. jill biden is coming to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the final nine days of this campaign in pennsylvania, $10 million worth of ads. most of them from the romney campaign and its allies. they're outspending the obama campaign 2 to 1. fred, nobody, no republican has won pennsylvania since 1988 in a presidential
's unfair, but that's what sticks in people's minds. >> in your mind, has president obama made the right move, wrong move? what do you think? >> i think he has made the appropriate move here. he hasn't been too over. that's the key here. you can't be overtly political in how you respond to these kinds of disasters. he obviously will accrue some benefits because he's acting aas commanders in chief are supposed to act and help people on a broad basis. as the remarks of governor christie of new jersey proved, this is a -- he gets bipartisan support out of this disaster. that has to help the bottom line come election day. >> of course, he hasn't been -- president obama wanted to fit in one last campaign paerps in florida, then hurriedly flew back because he realized he couldn't make it back to washington because the storm was coming. so he hasn't acted perfectly along this path, right? >> well, that's true. he has a number of surrogates and i understand bill clinton will be picking up a number of campaign appearances on the campaign trail. so that is going to help matters. president obama ca
like to set the country right side up. they understand president obama has been the leader in turning this country around, so much so that its growth and job creation keeps going up and up. they like to see an optimistic approach to government. that's what president obama has. they're also big believers in education. for a candidate like mitt romney who wants to abolish the department of education, we think we have a greater message for the independents, for women. we certainly are protecting women's health care. those are issues the independents are interested in. as well as the economy. who are they going to choose? someone who sides with sort of the antiquated views of abolishing or eliminated planned parenthood and attacking women's health care or look to someone who believes in embracing all of america. that's an optimistic view. we're optimistic and working hard and we really believe that nments along with those who are champions of president obama's cause will come to recognize that america is greater when we're united together. that's how the vote will turn out on november 6th
romney at lunchtime, president obama, there right now. our chief correspondent is there as well. jessica, that city is getting plenty of attention today. at least the two men weren't there at the same time. that would have been a bit awkward. >> yeah, although they would have had an unscripted debate. that would have been unusual and probably good for the public. this state getting so much attention because it is one of those must-win battlegrounds, don. and it tells us so much about the -- the map tells us so much about where they're fighting in these final days. where we are right now is not ju just -- it's sort of a two-for for the president. not just fighting ie way, but across the river. the president fighting hard to hold onto wisconsin as a blue state. he is visiting it three times in the closing days of this campaign. if you count debuke, why when they're not taking anything for granted. and paul ryan, that's his home state. so his edition to the romney ticket has made that reach for the pthd. it's still polling to the president's way. it just shows you how cloesz this fight real
from undecided voters, right? like barack obama, i understand he got -- handed a bad economy, but things aren't as much better as i thought they were going to be and i like what mitt romney is saying how he sees the future looking like but i'm not sure how he gets there. >> we hear a lot of swing voters talking about the deficit and the debt. concerned about the economy, the jobs. but that's not abstract. they understand that on a fundamental level and that's a key pitch the republicans have been making. that issue does resonate with people at their kitchen table. >> all right. great conversation. thank you, guys. >> i got one question. one question for you, don. one question. >> yes. >> we're both in ohio. it is all cold. how come you look like you're on gq and i look like the michelin man. >> you should be asking yourself that question, ali velshi. >> thank you, ali. thank you john avalon. appreciate it. now to some serious news here. a new storm is threatening to make recovery efforts worse in the northeast. our meteorologist chad myers is here to tell us how bad it could
problems in a lot of these communities going forward through the week. all right? thank you very much, everybody. >> again, president obama there at fema headquarters warning that this storm, hurricane sandy, is one that will be, quote, slow moving, and you also heard from fema's head, craig fugate there, who says the key to all of this is people heeding the evacuation orders they get from their various localities. so tens of millions of people along the east coast preparing for this monster of a storm that is expected to create extremely dangerous conditions from north carolina all the way up to new england. the outer bands of hurricane sandy already pounding the carolinas right now. the storm is about 250 miles southeast of cape hatteras, north carolina carrying 75.5-mile-an-hour winds. sandy is expected to move north and turn toward the east coast tomorrow and collide way cold front producing a mega storm. that cold front could also mean several feet of snow that might be dumped in west virginia and ohio and the big threat from this storm that it may knock out power, if not for hou
think the best thing president obama can do right now is exactly what he's doing, which is suspend some of the campaign events and be in the white house, be in charge. i want to give him kudos on one thing, which is the administrative of fema, craig fugate, is a man who worked here in florida in charge of emergency management services in florida, well-known to floridians, he's now -- he worked under jeb bush in florida as a real pro. i think president obama deserves points for having chosen somebody that is a professional instead of a political crony. but it is very important. it can make or break careers. there are points where politics and hurricanes meet and it can help or they can collide. and they can break careers. we all remember governor blanco in louisiana, what a disaster that was. >> yeah. we remember all of that. so, listen, a republican praising the president, a democrat, it happened here on cnn. lz, let's stick with the ground game here. because we are talking about the imaginary scenarios for after disaster happens. what happens after, can people get to the polls? will th
clear of attacks on president obama. jeb bush on stage right now, he made a very interesting comment a few moments ago about storm response. he said it's the state and local response that really matters, not clear whether or not that was a dig at the president and the federal response that's going on and attention paid to the federal response. really, that'ses a close as either that they have come going after president obama in this event and lines up from what i heard of a top romney adviser this morning that the gop nominee striking a positive tone on the campaign trail. we heard mario rubio. i think the closest he got was talking about the state of economy saying this doesn't have to be the new normal and seeing right now is maybe the new normal of the campaign at least for today, sort of steering clear from those really negative attacks that you hear out on the cam pan trail as campaign s win down. it's interesting with president obama and new jersey governor chris christie looking at storm damage later on today. that is one of mitt romney's top surrogates and so sort of fighting

the packers. he is a safety. what does the safety do? the safety protects against long passes -- that's right, the hail mary. that's something that the obama campaign is trying to do here in wisconsin. >> that makes me wonder, that long line behind you, are they waiting to see charles woodson or president obama? >> reporter: you know, it's hard to tell. but, yeah, i think the crowd is here to see both of them. obviously this is a crowd of supporters of president obama. very dedicated, i have to say. it is freezing cold here. and they are lined up. there is a ton of people you can't even see off camera. and they are ready for this event, carol. >> they're used to the cold. brianna keilar, thanks so much. >>> mitt romney already back on the campaign trail. he will hold three different rallies in virginia, beginning next hour in roanoke and then later in verge yain beach and doswell. he canceled because of superstorm sandy. at times yesterday during his visit in florida he used a softer tone in his campaign message. >> that's one of the great characteristics of our people. we come together in ti
at this point right now, suzanne, the state of the campaign, president obama was supposed to hold a rally this morning in florida. he did not attend. he came back to washington. governor romney is participating in some campaign events as we speak, but this evening he will not be -- will he cancel his events later this evening. there will be no events tomorrow, suzanne, so, yes, eight days before the election, this sandy has thrown a big wrench to the campaign. >> is there any sense from the obama campaign that this really allows the president to do something that mitt romney can't do, which is look presidential to have a real test of his leadership at a time that is critical to the nation? >> well, you know, suzanne, they won't outwardly say that, but, in fact, this is an opportunity for president obama, i think, to be able to step up and show that he is a leader, and i think that's why we saw governor romney take the action and cancel his campaign events as well. governor romney did pretty well in this last presidential debate, which was about foreign policy, but in many ways that debate

politically at a time like this. but president obama has the risk of handling this the right way and mitt romney takes the risk of looking like that's politicizing anything that goes wrong. >> i think it's important that mitt romney sort of stay in the spotlight because he can't afford for people to forget about him for three days. >> well, you know, he's actually in a real dangerous situation because the more he's in the spotlight regarding this hurricane, the more his appearance during the debate in which he said things like fema having money for fema is immoral and how he wants to privatize relief funds. he doesn't really want that conversation to underbelly or underscore what's going on right now because as people begin to see how important the government is in terms of handling these situations, they're going to be able to propose that to what romney wants to do, take all that money out of fema and put it into the hands of private citizens so people make a profit over whether or not citizens have been put out of their homes can find shelter. he doesn't want that circling around him a

served on the homeland security department in the obama administration. first of all, you have a column that is on right now, cnn.com. it essentially praises the president for his response to the storm. you say it's the most significant of his presidency. let's listen to a quick clip of his comments. >> i think the public needs to prepare for the fact that this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up, and we will get through this. >> so there are two things he points out. taking care of yourself and getting through this. really talking about the role of government, the heart of the role of government here, and the stark contrast between candidates. explain why you think this is so significant at this time. >> well, i think there's an important aspect to president obama's speech that gets lost in sort of the part sfwlan aspects of this, which is really about self-reliance and about the role of the government in promoting self-reliance amongst the citizenry, and so what you heard not just from obama -- this is why it's not necessarily part sxwlan

, both sides you can bet they find something to talk about in this report, you know, president obama can say it's better than 800,000 jobs losing taking office. romney, he can say that unemployment rate is too high and guess what? both would be right. brooke. >> we'll get the numbers and spin tomorrow. alison kosik, thank you. >>> now to day three of recovery in the northeast. sandy has been absorbed by another weather system now but the superstorm really redefined what waterfront means here in both new jersey and new york. sandy created this new inlet in new jersey cutting this barrier island in to two. our affiliate spoke with a homeowner of the home that was next door. >> there's nothing -- i mean, right now there's -- it's just water where the house would be. there's not even sand where the house was. there's a wake where the house was. since there's nothing left to go back to sift through, whether it's three days or three weeks, you know, all we would be looking at is a sand pile. >> and since this video was taken there, crews have built up a road so trucks can pass by. this is just

the candidates said visiting colorado. >> small business woman in jefferson county. >> women's rights. >> reporter: why the emphasis on women? pollsters estimate there are still 75,000 to 100,000 uncommitted voters in this swing state. most of them nonpartisan women. they voted for obama in 2008. but 2012 is a different story just a month ago president obama led governor romney by double digits. today that margin is razor thin. it really is still right down the lines of is the economy the important tipping point for you one way or the other or is it really the social issue that is are the tipping point one way or the other? >> reporter: for you it was? >> for me it was a little bit of both. >> reporter: registered independent laura is voting for obama. her running mates voted early. how did you vote if you voted already? >> i voted for romney. >> i feel like it's a lot of things in our economy that need to be worked on and i feel like obama has had a lot of great talk but not as much that's been done. >> reporter: with just days left, there are fewer and fewer people. you feel like th
